Add boiled yellow peas and spinach purée in the flour mixture and slowly mix with one hand to make a dough. Little water can also be added if required to make the dough smooth.
Put a tsp of oil above the dough and knead it again to increase the binding of flour and other ingredients.
Now pull a small part of dough and make a ball with both hands.
Place the ball on flat surface and roll with a rolling pin up to 5 to 7 cm of radius. We can dust with wheat flour while rolling the paratha if required.
Now put the rolled paratha on heated tava , pan or griddle on medium heat. Flip the paratha when slightly cooked from the one side.
Cook on the other side until brown round spot start appearing on that side and flip again.
Apply a tsp of oil on both side and flip side by side to make paratha crisp.
Remove the hot paratha from the tava and serve with yoghurt.
Parathas can be served with mint yoghurt or butter. Just add one tsp of pureed mint leaves in a bowl of yoghurt and mix well. Add roasted cumin seed , pepper and salt to enhance the flavor of mint yoghurt.
